Energy transfers happen around us all the time, and are the purpose of the machines we use in our daily lives. 

This class introduces the ideas;

1. That energy is conserved

2. That energy can be transferred usefully or wasted

3. How to represent the efficiency of these transfers using an equation and a diagram.

This is a great class for students to get an overview of the topic of Energy, serving as the basis for future learning.
